10/22 scopes?

I'm looking to replace the old fixed power scope on my 10/22 with something that has some zoom. Not looking to spend more on a scope then the gun cost though. I've been thinking about this one from Simmons, which is about $60 online.

Simmons Optics - Riflescopes - 22 Mag

Any other suggestions on a decent scope for cheap?

I'm pretty pleased with my ~50-60$ tasco I picked up at cabelas.



I really fail at taking pictures of what it is, apparently....but that's what it looked like in the package.

works pretty well for me.


and it came with the mounts!

When you decide to make a decision, go here first: The Sample List - The Entire Sample List!

It's ran by SWFA. It is New Blemish (Exterior only, not lens), New Showroom, refurb, or open box returns.

That one is really nice N8, but more than double what I wanted to spend on it. I still have to budget for an AR too ya know, and I'll want nicer optics on it.

The Tasco one looks aight, but I think for the money I'm gonna go with the Simmons.

I hear ya, just posting up a little info on it. The Nikons have been nice. I'd have not spent so much on it but it came as a package deal with my 10/22 for a good price PLUS a military discount on it so... *shrug*

The one Mic is linking to is similar. Should also be an excellent scope.

Only if you like saving money and don't mind a blemish or refurb.

You said you didn't wanna spend a whole lot of money, and there is a way to get a better scope for less!

Haven't had a chance to shoot it since I got the scope. Always worked good prior, though the 30 round banana mag I have for it hasn't been super-reliable. The factory 10 rounder is though. It is a little picky on ammo though, mostly all-lead bullets get it filthy quite quickly, which has caused some jams. Sticking to copper-coated/jacketed stuff helps a LOT.

I'll give a range report after I've sighted in the scope.

I picked up a UTG 3-9x32 CQB Bug Buster for mine, while you can certainly get cheaper, I've been satisfied with it.
